Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the NoSQL Zone (Nov. 29 to Dec. 5). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. An Entertaining Cartoon That Explains Apache Cassandra

An Atlassian article takes an unorthodox (but very effective!) approach to introducing how Apache Cassandra works. A comic! It features a bunch of little nodes talking to each other sort of like normal people.

2. MongoDB Facts: Over 80,000 Inserts/Second on Commodity Hardware

While experimenting with some time series collections, the author needed a large data set to check that his aggregation queries don’t become a bottleneck in case of increasing data loads. He settled for 50 million documents, and compared random value generation with JavaScript and Python.

3. Neo4j: What is a Node?

One of the first things the author needed to learn when he started using Neo4j was how to model his domain using nodes and relationships, and it wasn’t initially obvious to him what things should be nodes. In this article, you'll find some tips and tricks that helped him get started.

4. Getting Started with Neo4J Using Your Twitter Data

When approaching a technology like Neo4J, if you’re as avid of a Twitter user as the author is, then you already have the best data set for to learn with: your own social network. This post will help you set up Neo4J and a Twitter app (for the Twitter API), and work with data from your social network and others.

5. Boutique Graph Data with Titan

Titan is a distributed graph database capable of supporting graphs on the order of 100 billion edges and sustaining on the order of 1 billion transactions a day. In this article, you'll learn more about graph representations, graph traversals, and performance in Titan 0.4.1+.

Discover how the Watson team is further developing SDKs in Java, Node.js, Python, iOS, and Android to access these services and make programming easy. Brought to you in partnership with IBM.
